Forty-one years of shooting; 4 medium format SLRs, 5-35mm SLRs and this is the first one I've dropped. I have a Black Rapid but the stap wasn't the problem. I borrowed my daughter's smaller backpack camera bag and I wasn't used to the two-way zipper. I picked up the bag in the hotel room and the camera fell about 2 1/2 feet to the floor. Two days later I did the same thing when I pulled the bag out of the rental car. This time camera hit directly on the lens cap. It funny how glass and concrete just don't mix. Unfortunately, my 70-200 f4L and 28-135 have a different filter size. I'm going to have to spring for a new filter for the 17-55 f2.8. It's still a pretty inexpensive investment considering the cost of the lens.

While you're at it you might think about buying some camera-protection tissue paper. It really is fantastic; I rubbed my 7D against some bushes and the tissue got ripped to shreds. I dread to think what would have happened to the camera body if I hadn't had the tissue paper to protect it. At just $20 a sheet it's a pretty inexpensive investment considering the cost of camera.

Thanks for the advice everyone. Frank, I've never considered tissue paper. It must be true that mass spectroscopist think outside the box, or should I say quadrupole or magnetic sector! Sorry..a little analytical chemistry humor.

Ha! Yea Frank has some opinionated views on filter and some weird ways of expressing them, but hes always good for a laugh or two when you get him on the subject. Worth something I guess.
